David Kassan “Aubrey” PanPastel Black & Sofft Knife No.4 with General Pencil White Charcoal Pencil Drawing PanPastel is popular for drawing & sketching techniques. DAVID KASSAN: “I’ve been using PanPastel now for the past 6 years, I started using them for the basic block-ins for my charcoal drawings, because they offer the artist a painterly expressive approach to handing an otherwise linear approach. PanPastel has really changed the way I make paintings and drawings, it has given my realist work an expressive foundation on which to build on.” For DVD, Videos & Workshops visit: Hand-Coloring DIGITAL PanPastel works well on digital (non- glossy) papers, so it is the perfect medium to handcolor digital prints and photographs. The ability to apply semi-transparent layers of color allows the image to show through. 1. Convert any image* to black & white using Photoshop or similar photo editing software. *Suggestions: self-portrait, still life etc. 2. Print image on good quality ink-jet or laser paper. 3. Using a Sofft Tool e.g. Applicator (63070), apply PanPastel color lightly to image, building up transparent layers. Classroom Tips: 4Demonstrate how to lift color - by swiping pan surface with sponge 1-2 times. Show students that they should not dig or use pressure when lifting color as that creates unecessary dust. 4Mix colors like paint either on working surface or pan surface Note: traditional color mixing rules apply, e.g. don’t overblend to avoid “mud”. 4 Clean Sofft Tools between colors by wiping gently on a dry paper (kitchen) towel. 4 Clean pan surfaces by gently wiping away any color contamination with a clean Sofft sponge or paper towel. 4 Color layers can be isolated with workable (spray) fixative. 4 Experiment with different surfaces - on smoother surfaces the color lays down in more transparent layers. On textured surfaces the color is more intense as the tooth “grabs” more color. PALETTE TRAYS Each palette tray includes a cover for quick and easy classroom set-up and storage. TIP Apply thin transparent layers. Before applying remove any excess color from the applicator on a dry paper towel.
